Retail B2B Data Integration

Adeptia helps retailers maximize profit margins and puts cash back in their pockets. There are 3 areas where Adeptia’s solutions provides significant value to our retailer customers: 1) helping them meet early payment discounts; 2) speeding supplier onboarding; and 3) supporting accurate supply chain chargebacks.

Meeting Early Payment Discounts

Sometimes, suppliers of merchandise will offer retailers a discount if they pay an invoice within 10 days instead of 30 days (as an example). The problem is, it’s not always so easy for retailers to pay within 10 days, especially if invoice processing is not 100% automated, as is the case when they’re receiving invoices in multiple formats (EDI and non-EDI) and manually mapping the data for processing within back-end systems.

How Adeptia Helps

Adeptia helps retailers meet early payment discounts through:

  • The ability to accept data from any source, in any format
  • The ability to automate the validation, transformation, and mapping of data into a backend application
  • The ability to support and automate exception- and error-handling by seamlessly integrating human workflows

Speeding Supplier Onboarding

Retailers must connect to an ever-shifting base of suppliers, distributors, value-added networks (VANs) and managed service providers (MSPs). The EDI format is a standard in retail, but not every supplier can “speak” EDI, especially small “mom and pop” businesses with low technical capabilities.

How Adeptia Helps

Adeptia helps retailers onboard suppliers in minutes. With click-and-drag ease, business users — under the governance of IT experts — can map data and build business process workflows within Adeptia’s integration solution. Using Adeptia Connect, retailers can offer their suppliers a portal by which suppliers can choose their preferred file formats and map data directly into the retailers’ formats, without having to know anything about the retailers’ back-end systems.

Facilitating Supply Chain Chargebacks

Retailers must have a way of assessing fines or chargebacks to supply chain partners who don’t meet their commitments. Shipments that arrive late or not at all, invalid Advanced Shipping notices, damaged shipments, or shipments that go to the wrong location all cost retailers real dollars. Instead of absorbing them, retailers can bill their suppliers for the time it took to correct the problem. But that can be difficult or impossible — especially if data from multiple sources has to be correlated.

How Adeptia Helps

Adeptia’s solutions can correlate data from every source (whether internal OR external), map it, and standardize it so that retailers can use the data to compare, analyze, and track supply chain errors and generate reports. Using Adeptia’s solutions, retailers can apply greater discipline and accuracy to supply chain chargebacks and share the cost burden with their suppliers and distributors.
